- Genus (5): Auranticarpa · Bursaria · Hymenosporum · Pittosporum · Rhytidosporum
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 710 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Tribe Pittosporeae.
Auranticarpa is a genus of trees in the family Pittosporaceae. All six species occur in monsoonal forest and rainforest margins in Northern Australia. The species, all formerly included in the genus Pittosporum, are as follows: [more]
Bursaria is a genus of large shrubs and small trees which are native to Australia. The genus was first described by Antonio Cavanilles in 1797, with his description of the type species B. spinosa. The name is derived from the Latin word bursa (purse) which relates to the shape of its seed capsules. [more]
Hymenosporum flavum, or Native Frangipani, is a tree which is native to Queensland and New South Wales in Australia. It is the sole species within the genus Hymenosporum. [more]
Pittosporum ( or /?p?t?'sp??r?m/) is a genus of about 200 species of flowering plants in the family Pittosporaceae. The genus is probably Gondwanan in origin; its present range extends from Australasia, Oceania, eastern Asia and some parts of Africa. Citriobatus is usually included here, but might be a distinct (though closely related) genus. They are commonly known as pittosporums or, more ambiguously, "cheesewoods". [more]
At least 6 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Rhytidosporum.
